preview-pannie-kianzad-katharina-lehner

Episode 2 of TUF 28 goes down tonight and after a heavyweight win by Maurice Greene from Team Gastelum, Team Whittaker look to even the score. This time, however, it will be the women’s featherweights that try to get it done. Katharina Lehner is repping Team Whittaker and Pannie Kianzad is on Team Gastelum.

Katharina Lehner (7-1) is a two-time Invicta FC veteran. The only loss on her record is from her last fight, which was a loss to former Strikeforce bantamweight champion, Sarah Kaufman. Lehner is fighting at featherweight for TUF 28, but she has spent her career at bantamweight.

5-time Invicta FC vet, Pannie Kianzad (10-3), is also a bantamweight who is moving to featherweight for TUF 28. She will try to bring another W to Team Gastelum.

The show airs tonight on FS1 at 10 ET/ 7 PT.
